(500+ reviews on the web)
Water Body
Get away from it all on the banks of Kamogawa River, a river flowing from the mountains northwest of the city, and running right through town. With areas of cherry blossoms, green banks, and bridges acting as meeting places for young lovers, the river provides a welcome and varied place to evade the crowds and listen to the flowing water. See how the river interacts with the city in the more developed areas, with its waters becoming central to a number of shrines and pleasant gardens. For Kamogawa River and beyond, use our Kyoto holiday planner to get the most from your Kyoto vacation.
